1. Betty Tennessee Barrett was born November 28, 1877 near Kyles Ford in Hancock County, Tn. She was the younger sister to Mary Elizabeth and the older sister to Eliza and Bud. She was about 8 yrs old when the family moved to Ozark County, Missouri, so she probably held on to a few memories of growing up in Tennessee. She was described by her family as rather easy-going in personality, and of reddish color, and somewhat heavy in later years. She was said to be her father's pet, and got the enduring nickname from him of 'Tennessee'.
